South Korea says North Korea committed to "complete" denuclearisation, summit with Trump

US officials travel to North Korea to prepare for summit despite uncertainty

Kim Jong Un agreed to hold talks with the U.S.to pave the way for a summit with Donald Trump and reiterated a pledge to work for "complete denuclearization", according to South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Moon and Kim agreed at a surprise meeting on Saturday that the possible North Korea-U.S. summit must be held, Moon told a news conference in Seoul.

Moon said Kim saw the June 12 summit in Singapore as a pivotal opportunity to end decades of confrontation.

But, just two days later, President Trump suddenly called off the June summit in a letter to Kim Jong-un, . citing hostile comments from North Korean officials as well as concern about the country's commitment to giving up its nuclear weapons.

"It's moving along very nicely", Trump told reporters late Saturday when asked for an update.

However, separately on Saturday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders revealed that a team of United States officials was being dispatched to Singapore for summit preparations. "That hasn't changed. So, we'll see what happens".

Earlier this month, North Korea also released three us citizens―Kim Hak-song, Tony Kim and Kim Dong-chul―who had been detained in the country on charges of espionage and suspicion of "hostile acts".

Footage released by the Blue House on Twitter, accompanied by a dramatic orchestral score, showed Moon arriving in a convoy of cars and first shaking hands with Kim's sister Kim Yo-jong, who has played a major public role in recent talks with the South.

Moon's remarks at a televised news conference came nearly simultaneously as Trump said negotiations over the potential summit with Kim that he had canceled last week are "going along very well".

Only last month, the two leaders met in the same village, with Kim famously inviting Moon to step briefly into the North before they both held talks in a building on the South's side.

US President Donald Trump points to members of the media as he arrives on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Friday, May 25, 2018, after attending a graduation and commissioning ceremony at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

The group included US Ambassador to the Philippines, Sung Kim, and is a clear sign the summit is back on track.

Putin said Russian Federation and its partners would do the same by working to try to bridge the gap between the USA and North Korea.

Moon, who returned to Seoul on Thursday morning after meeting Trump in Washington in a bid to keep the high-stakes U.S.

The agency said the two leaders had reached a "satisfactory consensus" and expressed "their stand to make joint efforts for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".

The Washington Post previously reported on the team entering into North Korea.

Saturday's summit marks the fourth meeting between the leaders of the two Koreas since they were divided at the end of the World War II in 1945.
